Two chemical pregnancies/miscarriages in a row

Last month I fell pregnant after six months of trying. Initially I had a couple of quite strong symptoms (particularly sore breasts) but on the day my period was due they disappeared and when I took another test the line was fainter than it had been a couple of days earlier. I started bleeding just over a week later, so just over five weeks (I kept testing positive throughout this time, but the lines stayed light). I was pretty upset about it but knew it happens a lot. I fell again this month - but again, when I tested again a few days later the line was lighter, and this time I've had no symptoms at all, so it's pretty clear the same thing is happening again. I don't know when the bleeding will start, but I'm hoping it's over as soon as possible. Anyway, my question is: how concerning is this? It feels like something must be wrong with me, but is it likely that I've just had a run of bad luck? Is there any point at all going to see the GP? I'm 29, good health, normal weight, by the way.

Iva had two chemicals in the last year. Was feeling quite unwell with the second (dizzy and nauseous to the point I couldn't walk in a straight line). Went to the gp about it and they said it's just one of those things and that I've been unlucky. They won't run tests until I have a third miscarriage or until I reach a year from my last bfp. So basically I was told to sod off. Don't go through that.

Sorry to hear you've been through this. I've also had 2 chemicals in the last 7 months (trying for #3). I have got 2 DS & fell pregnant easily & no problems. I recently went to the dr & mentioned it & he said it's very common. Unfortunately nothing you can do to prevent it. It's very disheartening to find out you're pregnant & then for it to be over before it's even started sad Hope you get your BFP soon.

I recently had a chemical pregnancy too. My body kept on saying that I was indeed pregnant and even had a faint line on HPT. Unfortunately AF came after a week of being delayed.

I had a chemical pregnancy but had a lot of pain with it. The doctor referred me for an early pregnancy scan as the tests were still showing positive but sadly nothing was there & blood tests confirmed that the pregnancy was lost.. they did however find a large cyst which could explain the pain I had so I'm currently under going investigations for that as well as ttc.

Hope you get your BFP soon & it sticks!flowers

I just wanted to update this thread as I know a lot of the old mumsnet threads come up in Google, and I imagine there are plenty of other people with the same question. I did lose again (at 4+6, this time) and I went to my GP. She was lovely, took it very seriously (and was really sympathetic). She ordered a thyroid test for me, just in case, and said they'd refer me to the recurrent miscarriage clinic for further testing if I do have another loss. I will also qualify for an early scan if I get pregnant again and manage to hold onto it until the six week mark - I didn't know that. I know people have different experiences depending on their doctor, but I just wanted to say that for me it felt worthwhile going. I'd fretted so much beforehand about whether it was worth me going and whether they'd just brush me off that I thought I'd share this experience.
